38 Gusties Recognized As Fall Educational All-Conference



BLOOMINGTON, Minn. C For the sixth consecutive year or so, the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Office meeting (MIAC) has honored a record amount of fall sport student-athletes with School All-Conference recognition.

A total of 409 student-athletes with the 13 MIAC institutions earned your prestigious honor this year immediately after meeting all sport-specific athletic requirements and possessing a cumulative gpa (GPA) of 3.5 or better on a 4.Zero scale following the fall year. To be eligible for the honour, student-athletes must be a sophomore, junior or maybe senior with at least one year (two semesters) at their current college. Athletically, student-athletes in fall team activities (football, volleyball, soccer) must compete in 50 percent with their team’s regular-season varsity contests. Cross-country student-athletes are required to finish in the entire top 100 or their crew’s top seven at theMIAC X-country Championship.
